Christmas Card Club

Happy Sunday everyone! The sun is out here and I hope it is with you.  Our Christmas Card Club challenge this fortnight is set by Rachel who has asked for magical, mystical cards which I've struggled with which is silly really as all of Christmas should be magical at the very least.  However I got an idea in my head and have run reasonably successfully with it, although I'm not entirely happy with it.  I wanted to create a circular scene and add watercolour and then a sparkly shadow of the trees.   It's almost there, but not quite.  Any tips gratefully received.

Stampin' Up! sets that I've included are Lovely as a Tree, Colourful Seasons and Watercolour Christmas for the sentiment.  I've stacked the image onto dapper denim circles for an on trend look although I know that the trend is really to stamp over the edges of die cut letters and shapes.  I've used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to add the shadow in very pale soft sky ink and then a fine tip glue pen to add dazzling diamonds glitter.  A litter embossing paste to give the effect of snow drifts at the bottom of the trees.

Please do visit the challenge members from the link at the top of my blog Christmas CC for more inspiration as this theme opens so man doors and I'm sure you'll be inspired.

You may not be aware but the Stampin' Up! Winter Catalogue launched on 1 September and you can see all the festive, autumn/winter and halloween goodies by clicking HERE.

If you prefer a paper copy then please do email me at zoetant@live.co.uk and I'll get one in the post to you.

Thanks for popping by and enjoy Sunday and have a great week.
